6 PyCharm Plugins That Will Boost Your Python Programming

Plugins I could not code without
I use PyCharm Professional every day at work and would not be without it, but I do relay on a few plugins which makes things easier.

So I thought I would share these with you guys, so let's get to it.

1. Rainbow CSV
Rainbow CSV is a CSV file reader which colour codes each column for easy viewing inside of PyCharm. This saves having to load any CSV files into Excel or Numbers, you can do it all from PyCharm.

2. Rainbow Brackets

Rainbow brackets does as you would think, it colour codes your brackets, just like Rainbow CSV does for CSV’s. This is really handy to see if you have missed a bracket at the beginning, middle or end of a line.

Indent Rainbow is yet another rainbow colour plugin but this time it colours your indentations.

4. Tabnine

Tabnine is a AI driven auto code completion plugin, this is scary accurate and has even taught me some things! I use the free version which is limited but the Pro version is not much a month if you fancy the Pro.

5. CodeGlance

CodeGlance gives you a visual sidebar of your code, and makes navigating your code a lot easier.

6. Material Theme

The material theme is a selection of themes for PyCharm, these themes make coding in different lighting situations a little easier. My personal favourite is Monokai Pro, I love the code syntax colouring.
